I have a few pictures of the ducts used to redirect air to the IC. It's in the AKIC OT thread.

EDIT I just copied the post:
Just some pictures taken to show how the new XT gets air to the IC.

I think Subaru is doing a great job with the Impreza and Forester designs. They look much better than previous models.

OP: Enjoy the XT! Looks like a great car.

True, but anything is an improvement on previous models. At least they seem to be moving in the right direction

I think this is the case for the F-series engine. Certainly, the FB20 on my 2013 Impreza is configured the same way. I also appreciate the lip around the filter to help stop oil from dripping down onto the rest of the engine.

I'm going to bump this thread. Next month will be a year with the FXT and we love it. It's a damn good time to drive. No major problems at all, just a few "hard starts" but haven't had any in a while *knock on wood*

If you're on the fence about getting a new Forester XT, jump over. It's well worth it.
